Reviews
This is a lovely story about two artists meeting in the midst of WWI, a missing baby, and an intelligent, lost young woman helping an old man fix the mistakes of his past. I loved Nick and Jenny from the moment I met them, and had all my fingers crossed that they would find not only what they were looking for, but themselves.--Ann Napolitano, author of Hello Beautiful
Vividly peopled, intricately plotted, and gorgeously written, The Stolen Child is one of those all-consuming and big-hearted novels that explores what it means to be human - how to love, accept loss, transcend failures, and become the person you are meant to be. Reading Ann Hood is like setting out on an adventure with a wise and trusted friend ... you never want it to end--Adrienne Brodeur, author of Little Monsters and Wild Game
[The Stolen Child] is compelling, skillfully told, and meticulously structured...A well-crafted, fast-paced story about how a single encounter can shape a person's whole life.-- "Kirkus (starred review)"
